USB-C Ethernet adapters

May 21, 2019  By  SP&T Staff

TRENDnet has launched the USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET5G) and the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET2G). These adapters provide a simple way for users to upgrade their Ethernet connection to high-performance, multi-gigabit networking speeds. Users can transfer or download large files to a laptop or computer over a USB-C connection faster than previously possible. Both models support high-speed 2.5GBASE-T networking speeds up to 2.5Gbps, with a USB 3.1 connection interface to maintain fast and reliable network connectivity; the TUC-ET5G also supports the higher 5GBASE-T network speed, up to 5Gbps.
TRENDnet’s USB-C Ethernet Adapters are compatible for use with existing Cat5e cabling (or better). They also support CoS and VLAN industry protocols that can be passed along to a connected switch. CoS allows users to prioritize specific types of data over others, and VLANs allow for virtual device groupings for an added layer of protection and simpler network management.
